Tortellini in Brodo

Aired August 27, 2007

3 quarts chicken stock
2 10-ounce bags spinach
2 bags frozen cheese-filled tortellini
A handful of flat-leaf parsley leaves
Zest of 1 lemon
A couple of handfuls of Parmigiano Reggiano
A loaf of crusty bread

In a large pot, bring stock up to a boil. Drop in the frozen tortellini. Give it a stir and cook according to package directions.

When tortellini are done and look like puffed up pillows, ladle soup into soup bowls. Wilt a few leaves of spinach into each bowl.

Top with some lemon zest and a small handful of Parmigiano. Serve with some crusty bread alongside.
